Hi thanks for the replies.
I have to admit that I don't really get it. When clicking on "define", I enter the Coldfusion Administrator where I originally set my database by adding a new datasource. When I click on "verify all connections", the status comes back as "OK" but this still doesn't populate anything on the connection drop-down list of dataassist.
I have tried with 2 different MS Access databases so far, one for dataassist and one for securityassist and I get stuck for both addons because the connection appears as ***none***
Any thoughts about what might be going wrong?
